Customize Your Firefox: More Christmassy Add-ons and FoxClocks

With Christmas drawing nearer and nearer, and since Firefox 3.0 is still amongst the most popular browsers in use, I thought I might show you some additional Christmassy Firefox add-ons that should put you in the festive mood. With Tinseltown 2.111108 and Xmas 1.1 you can turn your browser into a snow covered, winter wonderland, and with FoxClocks you can precisely say when Christmas kickoffs in several parts of the world.

The Tinseltown 2.111108 Firefox add-on will work on Windows- based operating systems as well as on Linux and Mac OS X. Here is what you can expect to get once you add it to your browser: WatiWorks Christmas icons, Christmassy imagery including snow, reindeers, candy cane stripes and Christmas lights, and a semi-transparent URL and search bar. The best part of it all is that you can merge Tinseltown with any web page you visit, as long as said webpage has a white background (like FindMySoft does).

The Xmas 1.1 Firefox add-on is designed by 28 years old designer Adam Savaden and will work best with Firefox 3.0. “Xmas 1.1 is a theme made up of original icons drawn by me, a snowy background, and Christmas-colors throughout. There are plenty of planned improvements/additions that I have in mind for this theme, but I figured I'd better release it at this stage before the holiday has come and gone,” explains the theme’s creator. For the time being Xmas 1.1 will only work on Windows-based systems. You should also know that this add-on is classified by Mozilla as “experimental”, meaning that an editor did not yet find the time to go over it and determine whether it is safe to use or not.

FoxClocks is an add-on that you can use even after the winter holidays are over. It does something pretty simple, but at times extremely useful – it displays the time around the world. It works with Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird.
